Rugby World Cup Sevens gaining momentum from all corners

In today’s world people have little time to sit and watch sports for long periods of time. As a result of this there have been quite a few innovations in the format of the sports like cricket and rugby. Much like the twenty-twenty format that had been introduced in cricket and received great popularity within a very short span of time, the Rugby Sevens is also coming of age. It was a huge success in the Commonwealth Games and the crowds absolutely loved it. This has greatly increased the interest in the World Club Sevens that is going to be held at Twickenham. The Premiership Sevens has also gained popularity in Great Britain. The people associated with Sevens have clearly stated that there will be specialists for the game yet the situation is dicey because the best players remain so in each and every format of the game. The Rugby Sevens will be featuring in the Olympics for the first time in Rio and this will act as the major litmus test for this format. However there might be several confusions with the flexibility brought in the rule that allows a person to represent a country of his choice if he owns a valid passport for the same.
Nevertheless the clubs are gearing up for the World Club Sevens that is going to be held recently. The squads have named their players and respective captains. Gloucester Rugby coach Olly Morgan has announced his squad which includes Charlie Norman, Sam Showering and Ed Tellwright to name a few. Their rivals in Pool B Cardiff Blues have named Jevon Groves as their captain along with exciting players like Lloyd Williams and Luke Morgan. USA national Rugby Sevens champion Seattle will be lead by Waisale Serevi during their campaign against the likes of Waratahs and Auckland.
